Well the eggplants are coming in from the garden in a big way. The last time I looked there were 10 eggplant fruit on the plant plus another 10 purple flowers. I guess I'm going to be searching the eggplant section of Zaar for
additional ideas. LOL!
Posted for Zaar World Tour 2005. From a cookbook of countries along the Danube, this came from Germany. The original recipe called for a tablespoon of salt but I cut it down to a teaspoon (particularly since the sprouts are cooked in broth). Cooking time includes chilling time. I have not tried this recipe yet. Update - tried for Christmas as per Elmotoo's comment. Very pretty with tomatoes, and I thought there was too much vinegar in the dressing so I suggest reducing to 1/4 cup as per current ingredients list.
I love brussels sprouts, and am always looking for new ways to make these. This recipe came from Southern Livings 40 Years of our Best Recipes. It adds the delicate flavors of carrot and celery to the brussel sprouts, with a crunchy cashew topping.
This is a delicious AND healthy way to prepare butternut squash. This is the only way I will eat it! You may need to adjust the amount of olive oil you use depending on how big the squash is that you are going to use.
A delightful and very elegant summer starter dish that is fresh and easy to make. The combination of the parmesan cheese with the hazenut oil and black olives is a very sophisticated flavour, making this a wonderful dish to serve before any special summer dinner party. If you cannot get hold of hazelnut oil, walnut oil would be a good substitute. Green olives can also be used, but the colours will not be so dramatic! Try to use FRESHLY grated/shaved parmesan cheese from a block, the taste is far better than the pre-packed grated cheese. Wine suggestion - a chilled Chablis or Chardonnay.
Fresh garden herbs are used to prepare this vegetable side dish. If you want to cook these in the oven with meat, adjust the oven temperature to correspond to the temperature that you are using to cook the other dishes (between 350-425°F adjusting the time necessary to cook the vegetables). Recipe adapted from The Way We Cook.
Another terrific recipe from Wolfgang Puck.
This is a very impressive and yummy side dish for the holidays. A great alternative to the "usual" sweet potato dish.
Note: Ideally you should use a tart pan with removable sides & bottom.

Leeks and carrots both have a natural sweetness that mingles nicely.
This is a mild and pleasant side dish, good with pasta, potatoes, and soy dishes.
We loved this dish.
My husband and I love those incredible baked sweet potatoes you can only order at steakhouses - but who wants to have the oven on all day just for potatoes! Well here is a really slick alternative that is even better then the restaurants.
This was something I came up with yesterday, virtually on the spot. I was hungry for some warm vegetables and came up with this. These are vegetables that I already had so luckily I didn't have to go out to get anything. the only thing with this recipe is that the each vegetable is cut differently.
